American Bar Association President Laurel G. Bellows has urged the president to make filling judicial vacancies a top domestic priority for his second term.
“Our judicial system is predicated on the principles that each case deserves to be evaluated on its merits, that justice will be dispensed evenhandedly and that justice delayed is justice denied,” said Mr. Bellows in a letter to the president last week. “None of this is achievable if the judiciary is denied the funds or the judges it needs to do its important work.”
